I’ve always liked Sakuraba and he is one hell of a come from behind type of guy but he isnt one of my favorites. Maybe not so much his fault as much as Pride and Dream who make him fight in obviously retarded match ups. He is not a real professional fighter…. more of a side show fighter.
He has tons of heart though which is very admirable.
I have always liked fighters I can relate to or who seem like someone who is a good guy
^ You can’t say that if you weren’t around. You had to be there. Once in a lifetime. You’re seeing him in retrospect. The whole ‘half-dead but still could win’ thing didn’t start until the Smirnovas fight in ’06. You’re basing him off now instead of his prime. You wouldn’t base your opinion of Brian de Palma off of shit like “Femme Fatale”, would you? Hell no; you go by “Scarface”, or “The Untouchables”.
i like who you all hate: Rashad, BJ and tito are my top 3
as far as entertainment value it’s always wandy and saku, when they are in the cage/ring (not just when they are fighting each other) the chances for something epic to happen just got a whole lot better
forrest is probably my favorite outside of the cage
oh and chris lytle cause he’s a dumb indiana hilljack like me
